Leathercoated MindsTrip Down The Sunset Strip (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Viva/Sundazed, 1967. New Copy (reissue)... $14.99 21.98
A lost gem from the LA scene of the 60s – a set that was originally cast as an exploitation of the heady Sunset Strip scene, but which actually features a fair bit of excellent work by the young JJ Cale! Cale arranged and produced the set, and wrote some tunes too – and the record features lots of his own great guitar – really kind of weird and trippy, and played in a style that's deft, but kind of weirdly sonic too! Half the tunes are covers of the most tripped-out psych numbers of the time, and the rest are great originals – with vocals that are right on the money, but still take second stage to the great guitar. Titles include "Pot Luck", "Non Stop", "Kicks", "Arriba", "Sunshine Superman", "Over Under Sideways Down", and "Sunset & Clark". LP, Vinyl record album

Dead KennedysFresh Fruit For Rotting Vegetables (180 gram pressing with poster & prints) ... LP
Cherry Red (UK), 1980. New Copy (reissue)... $26.99
Landmark work from The Dead Kennedys – and maybe still one of the greatest punk records to ever come from the American scene! There's so much here that so many other records are missing – razor-sharp instrumentation, a great sense of pacing, and most importantly, a biting wit that always keeps the whole thing from ever lapsing into any sort of over-serious cliches! Yet unlike their LA contemporaries, the group were also never ones to just lay into the jokes – as the political commentary here is especially pointed, and nearly every single song is a blistering attack on late 70s California mores and national obsessions. Every track's a gem – and titles include "Kill The Poor", "Forward To Death", "Let's Lynch The Landlord", "Your Emotions", "Holiday In Cambodia", "California Uber Alles", and "Stealing People's Mail" – plus a killer cover of "Viva Las Vegas". LP, Vinyl record album
(Great pressing – super-heavy vinyl!)

BreakdownsRock N Roller Skates ... CD
Rum Bar, 2015. New Copy ... $6.99
These guys don't take the British flag on the cover lightly – as they come across with this wonderful style that's filled with all the best Brit references from The Who through The Jam, and onwards! The sound has the sharpness of the best mod work from years back – but it's also not mod-revival at all, as it's got a slightly brasher, bolder vibe – with no intentional retro elements in the music, just a great back-to-basics vibe that's filled with short, sharp guitar lines, and loads of wonderful hooks throughout. Titles include "UK Youth", "Off The Record", "Sweet Pamela Jayne", "Mainline Waiting", "Stick Em Up Buddy", and "It's Only Love". CD

✨✧ Creedence Clearwater RevivalWilly & The Poor Boys ... LP
Fantasy, 1969. Very Good+ ... $19.99
It's hard to get any more classic than this for Creedence Clearwater Revival – as this legendary late 60s album is definitely the place where it all comes together! The pairing of John Fogerty's lead guitar and the scratching rhythm guitar of brother Tom really sounds wonderful here – driven on by tight bass and drums, but always with this rootsy edge that stretches from the Bay Area scene way down to the bayou! Titles include the classic "Down On The Corner" and a great version of "The Midnight Special" – plus "It Came Out Of The Sky", "Side Of The Road", "Effigy", "Don't Look Now", and "Fortunate Son".

DeathSpiritual Mental Physical – Original Reel-To-Reel Demo Recordings 1974-1976 ... LP
Drag City, 1974/1975/1976. New Copy ... $14.99 16.98
A fresh discovery from pre-punk Motor City firebrands Death – who were not only pioneers of African American punk rock, they also pre-figured some best adrenaline-fueled underground rock of the next decade and more! Spiritual Mental Figures features ten raw demos from 1974-1976 – seven of which were recorded on a two-track reel-to-reel stereo recorder – and it's exciting, pummeling, incendiary stuff! A worthy addition to Death revival campaign that began with Drag City's essential release of their For The Whole World To See album. Get it! Includes "Views", "The Masks", "Change", "World Of Tomorrow", "The Storm Within", "Dannis On The Motor City Drums" and more. LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ English BeatI Just Can't Stop It ... CD
London/Go Feet, 1980. Used ... $0.99
The first album from The English Beat – and not only is it one of the most essential of the English ska revival era of the late 70s and early 80s – it's one the most enduring records of 1980 in any genre! The English Beat, like the best of their peers, used ska and rocksteady inspiration to fuel their own contemporary UK sound – and it sounds great to this day! The rhythms and tighter and punchier here than on later records, with some pop, mod and soul lacing their songwriting and vocals, too. A landmark! Includes "Mirror In The Bathroom", "Hands Off. . .She's Mine", "Twist & Crawl", "Big Shot", "Best Friend", "Jackpot" and more. CD

English BeatVinyl Collection (I Just Can't Stop/Wha'ppen/Special Beat Service/Dub Album) (180 gram vinyl – 4LP box set) ... LP
Edsel (UK), Early 80s. New Copy 4LP ... $53.99
An amazing document of one of the grooviest groups to emerge from the UK at the start of the 80s – not just their three full albums, but almost as much rare bonus material as well! The English Beat came a bit later than the initial wave of Two Tone ska revival groups – and they came with a difference, too – a bit more soul, and a slightly more contemporary approach to their music – one that pushed Jamaican roots into mod London modes – particularly the best sorts that were bubbling up in the post-punk generation! The group really helped revive some warmer sounds in British music – yet without just copying older modes from the other side of the Atlantic, too – and these three great albums definitely went onto set a fire in a host of other groups as well – the first wave of some surprisingly soulful moments from the UK in the 80s. The box set features the full albums I Just Can't Stop It, Wha'ppen, and Special Beat Service – plus a rare bonus dub album, with dub versions of 7 more tracks! LP, Vinyl record album

Plastic Ono BandLive Peace In Toronto ... CD
Capitol, 1969. Used ... $8.99
Live Peace in Toronto from John & Yoko – not the sprawling art rock proto noise collective that would record a little later, but a small group featuring Eric Clapton on guitar, Klaus Voorman on bass and Alan White on drums – who surprised the audience at the Toronto Rock & Roll Revival festival! The album is most famous for the iconic "Give Peace A Chance" sing-a-long, but it includes some raucous covers, some then new Lennon originals, some wild Yoko vocals, and some and all around good natured vibes. Other titles include "Money", "Blue Suede Shoes", "Yer Blues", "Cold Turkey". Side two has the full on Yoko extreme art noise, with "Don't Worry Kyoko (Mummy's Only Looking For Her Hand In The Snow)" and "John, John (Let's Hope For Peace)". CD

Post Industrial NoiseOffical Anthology (180 gram colored vinyl) ... LP
Medical, 1983. New Copy ... $13.99
Unjustly obscure post punk synth rock by Post Industrial Noise – an Ohio trio that put out one flexidisc and one cassette in the early 80s before disbanding and reorganizing later as Near Paris! The sound isn't really all that noisy in the caustic sense of the word – but there is a chilly sense of menace. It's really a strong batch if minimalist guitar, drums and synth – and a yet another amazing reminder of what a fertile underground rock engine the the state of Ohio was in the 70s and 80s! Includes "Sketch", "Survivalist", "Outside Reality", "Compartment Life", "Cota City Salsa", "Think", "Symphony Of A Mind", "Prelude" and "Eyes". LP, Vinyl record album

RatsFirst Long Player Record ... CD
RPM (UK), 1974. New Copy ... $6.99
Crunchy mid 70s glam pop from Rats – junkshop rockers in the vein of Slade, Gary Glitter and Showaddywaddy – but with a huge dollop of T Rex thrown in for good measure! (Who doesn't need a little T Rex in their glam pop formula, right?) Roaring, rock guitar ear candy for fans who couldn't get enough from the Boobs compilation and other glam pop revivalist ventures! Tracks include "Turtle Dove", "LA Highway", "Nose Job", "Rolling Railroad Wagon", "Queen", "Very Small Child", "Oxford Donna", "Main Horse Cowboy" and "Child He Die". CD

Scott Walker & Sunn0)))Soused (180 gram pressing) ... LP
4AD, 2014. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... $29.99
Incredible work from Scott Walker – maybe the best album so far in his revival stretch of the last few decades – and a set that has even more depth and power than the previous albums! The album's a collaboration with Sunn0))) – who provide these dark textures and sonic patterns that are extremely low-end – which leaves Walker's vocals plenty of space up top to unfurl with this lyrical power we haven't heard in years – and a range of expression that's almost operatic in nature – easily some of the boldest vocalizations we've ever heard from Scott – and that's saying a lot, given his incredible legacy since the 60s. The whole thing almost feels like one of the most perfectly-realized moment of Walker's darker later period – and although the group performs the music, it was all still written by Scott. Titles include "Brando", "Bull", "Herod 2014", "Fetish", and "Lullaby". LP, Vinyl record album

Paul WellerStudio 150 ... CD
V2, 2004. Used ... $2.99
Paul Weller returns to a major label (a return in the US, anyway) with a set of covers – featuring the husky-voiced Weller in fine form on a far-reaching set of tracks! We're consistently impressed with Paul's solo albums, particularly 2003's sadly under appreciated (in the US, anyway) gem Illumination, so it was a bit of a downer to hear that his return to the big leagues on this side of the pond is a covers album – but it's actually a worthy endeavor! It's mostly done in Paul's stripped-down soul revival mode, reigning in some pretty disparate source material to the style. Tracks include "If I Could Only Be Sure", "Wishing On A Star", "Don't Make Promises", "Close To You", "Early Morning Rain", "Hercules", "All Along The Watchtower" and more. CD

Frank Zappa/Mothers Of InventionAbsolutely Free ... LP
Verve, 1967. Good Gatefold ... $9.99
One of the most mindblowing pop culture pastiches of the 60s – a record that's as absolutely mad as it is absolutely free – and proof that a whole new generation of musicians like Zappa were using the studio like an instrument itself! This is work that could have never existed away from record – as the mix of sounds, moods, and music comes together with a maddening frenzy – hardly the languid speed you'd expect from the early years of hippiedom – and instead, an inspirational stream of styles and ideas delivered with trademark Zappa dexterity and wit! The album's divided into two long passages – "Absolutely Free" and "The MOI American Pageant" – with tracks that include "Plastic People", "Amnesia Vivace", "The Duke Regains His Chops", "America Drinks & Goes Home", "Son Of Suzy Creamcheese", "Status Back Baby", and "The Duke Of Prunes". LP, Vinyl record album
